There are a few folks in this world who possess so much talent that a single career or pursuit cannot come close to containing all of it.
One such person is Ted Grussing, who – in addition to being an acclaimed photographer - has been a successful businessman, lawyer, public speaker, author, pilot, military serviceman (US Air Force), gemstone cutter, jewelry designer, and inventor. And for good measure, he also builds the high end, state-of-the-art personal computers that power his diverse endeavors.
The Sedona Renegades Artist Group is proud to welcome Ted as their featured guest artist this Sept. He will be showing a compelling assortment of his exceptional works during the month in Hozho Center at the Sedona Center for Harmony and Enrichment.
The public is cordially invited to the venue’s First Friday reception on Sept. 1 from 5-7:30 p.m., where Ted will be happy to share the stories behind some of his most beloved images and, perhaps, recount a few tales from his many adventures.
Ted has been a professional photographer since the age of 14, and photography has remained a dominant force in his life ever since. He holds a BA from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota and a JD degree from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.
His photography conveys his sweeping vision of the beauty of the natural world, and includes aerial landscapes, wildlife, flowers, and other natural subjects. Creating imaginative composite and abstract artworks based on his photos is also a passion.
Ted’s images are published in Arizona Highways, Sedona Monthly, and many other outlets, and have been acquired by collectors worldwide. He has also photographed for numerous state and federal agencies, including the USFS, EPA, USGS, AZGS, City of Sedona, and the Sedona Airport Authority. He is a frequent speaker in public and private forums.
